Enum DataElementStringencyEnum

    • Enum Constant Summary

      Enum Constants 
      Enum Constant Description
      COMPARABLE
      Display: Comparable
      Code Value: comparable The data element is sufficiently well-constrained that multiple pieces of data captured according to the constraints of the data element will be comparable (though in some cases, a degree of automated conversion/normalization may be required).
      CONVERTABLE
      Display: Convertable
      Code Value: convertable The data element allows multiple units of measure that are convertable between each other (e.g.
      EQUIVALENT
      Display: Equivalent
      Code Value: equivalent The data element allows multiple units of measure having equivalent meaning; e.g.
      FLEXIBLE
      Display: Flexible
      Code Value: flexible The data element is unconstrained in units, choice of data types and/or choice of vocabulary such that automated comparison of data captured using the data element is not possible.
      FULLY_SPECIFIED
      Display: Fully Specified
      Code Value: fully-specified The data element is fully specified down to a single value set, single unit of measure, single data type, etc.
      SCALEABLE
      Display: Scaleable
      Code Value: scaleable A convertable data element where unit conversions are different only by a power of 10; e.g.

      • COMPARABLE

        public static final DataElementStringencyEnum COMPARABLE
        Display: Comparable
        Code Value: comparable The data element is sufficiently well-constrained that multiple pieces of data captured according to the constraints of the data element will be comparable (though in some cases, a degree of automated conversion/normalization may be required).
      • FULLY_SPECIFIED

        public static final DataElementStringencyEnum FULLY_SPECIFIED
        Display: Fully Specified
        Code Value: fully-specified The data element is fully specified down to a single value set, single unit of measure, single data type, etc. Multiple pieces of data associated with this data element are fully comparable.
      • EQUIVALENT

        public static final DataElementStringencyEnum EQUIVALENT
        Display: Equivalent
        Code Value: equivalent The data element allows multiple units of measure having equivalent meaning; e.g. "cc" (cubic centimeter) and "mL" (milliliter).
      • CONVERTABLE

        public static final DataElementStringencyEnum CONVERTABLE
        Display: Convertable
        Code Value: convertable The data element allows multiple units of measure that are convertable between each other (e.g. inches and centimeters) and/or allows data to be captured in multiple value sets for which a known mapping exists allowing conversion of meaning.
      • SCALEABLE

        public static final DataElementStringencyEnum SCALEABLE
        Display: Scaleable
        Code Value: scaleable A convertable data element where unit conversions are different only by a power of 10; e.g. g, mg, kg.
      • FLEXIBLE

        public static final DataElementStringencyEnum FLEXIBLE
        Display: Flexible
        Code Value: flexible The data element is unconstrained in units, choice of data types and/or choice of vocabulary such that automated comparison of data captured using the data element is not possible.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static DataElementStringencyEnum[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (DataElementStringencyEnum c : DataElementStringencyEnum.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static DataElementStringencyEnum valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • getCode

        public String getCode()
        Returns the code associated with this enumerated value
      • getSystem

        public String getSystem()
        Returns the code system associated with this enumerated value
